What is the difference between Infrastructure and Ad-hoc mode?
This type of network integrates both wireless and wired network devices whereby the wireless devices are made a part of the network through the use of an Access Point. The Access Point connects the device to the rest of the network. This is usually the most common wireless network.An Ad-hock network is a local area network or other small network, such as wireless, in which some of the network devices are part of the network only for the duration of a communications session. In the case of mobile and portable devices, they can be a part of the network when in close proximity to the rest of the network. Two computers, each with its own wireless LAN card, can act in an Ad-hoc mode.
